We'll get my one out of the way. I left clothes in the washer too long. Maybe three days too long, but I am not for sure because the middle of my week is always a blur. Friday night, I started sorting laundry and switching it around. I throw in the clothes from the washer, which were practically dry at this point, into the dryer.
They reek of swamp ass.
I knew they were mildew-y. I knew it. But instead, I threw in 12 sheets of Bounce thinking that it would do the trick and fluff them into magically smelling clean clothes. I think the heat of the dryer made it worse. The smell intensified. When I was folding them, I started tossing pieces back into the dirty clothes pile. Then, my lazy self put the rest of the not-so-bad ones away.
And all weekend, those were the clothes that we wore... Or clothes that were hanging/folded next to other clothes, which subsequently smell rancid now. So tonight, I will be re-washing everything we own.
And Kohl's? What did they ever do to me?
Last week, I bought 3 sets of these super cute "etched" glasses. They were "etched" in polka dots and vintage stripes. I immediately came home, rinsed them off, threw all of my old glasses away, and restocked the cabinets with these beauties.
Over the weekend, a few of them went through the dishwasher. And that "etching" isn't so etched. The glasses have started peeling plastic. My only dilemma is that I threw the boxes away-- and probably the receipt. I am going to dig around for that today... or go up in there Big Holly style.
I pulled up the website because I was thinking that maybe the box said that these weren't dishwasher safe... But nope.

Cheers to a Happy Monday! I hope to find some normal smelling clothes and my Kohl's receipt. :)
